Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland that helps regulate your dog's overall balance. It is used in holistic and veterinary medicine along with Lignans as a natural treatment for Cushings disease. Studies show reduced cortisol in dogs when given as a combination. It's also effective in helping with the loss of hair and skin irritations.
- For dogs less than 30 lbs, give 3 mg of melatonin every 12 hours.
- For dogs over 30 lbs, give 5-6 mg of melatonin every 12 hours.
Some vets may recommend 1 mg of melatonin every 12 hours for dogs under 10 lbs, or for people who want to give their dog a low dosage of melatonin.
